with the israeli ambassador to the united states, michael orin. >> has the obama administration made clear enough for your government where the red line is? >> the obama administration said time and again they're determined to prevent iran from acquiring nuclear weapons. the red line is designed to show -- help persuade the united states where, how you can achieve that goal of preventing iran from acquiring military nuclear capabilities. >> you make aistinction between acquiring or having the capability of having a nuclear weapon? >> well, the capability from our perspective would probably set up a nuclear arms race in the middle east. it would greatly impair our ability to respond to terrorist attacks say from lebanon or gaza. if we defend ourselves, whether iran could break out and use a nuclear weapon and it could do so in a small room somewhere, put this bomb together. this is a country half the size of europe. there's a good chance you're not going to know where that room is. what we're saying is the one part of this nuclear program that we can see, because there's a warhead part, there's a
night who said this is a failure of the obama administration. do you see it as that, the way, what we're seeing in the arab spring, what we're seeing happen in libya? >> i think obviously because of the tragedy that we have to know whether measures could have been taken and there is already evidence coming -- forthcoming, including chris' diary that there were threats and you know, i think we need to investigate that aspect of it. but this is still a very dangerous part of the world. we still have these jihadists coming across their borders. if there's anything we can help them with, it's border security. and so all i can say is it's a great tragedy and i'm not so concerned about the fact there may have been intelligence failures as i am about not telling the american people the truth. >> senator mccain, thank you. >> thanks for having me back on. >>> you can see the whole interview with senator mccain shortly on ac360.com. let us know what you think. we're on facebook, follow us on twitter. >>> a short time ago, secretary of state hillary clinton sat down with israeli prime minister
is true, correct? >> yes. that's correct. they're not true. instead, what the obama administration policy calls for is a waiver program where states can apply for a waiver from work requirement rules but in exchange, they have to come up with some kind of plan to more efficiently promote work. what we found is that only 29% of people receiving cash assistance were meeting that work requirement when obama took office. >> you even talked to a former congressional aide who was instrumental in crafting that legislation and he told you it was misleading. >> yes. yes. he said he didn't agree with the obama administration changing the rules on the work requirement, but he said that the ads claim that this was gutting welfare reform was very misleading. >> do you recall, jim, any example, i know the campaign hasn't gotten back to you but you've been with the campaign now, do you recall any example of a correction that they've made or taken down an ad? >> i don't. and you know, keep in mind the very first ad that came from the romney campaign during this campaign cycle was an ad that took presiden
out of welfare? >> i think what the obama administration has said is that no, they're trying to give governors the flexibility to increase the amount of work that goes into receiving welfare benefits. you're saying you don't buy that. >> no, no. you always have the capacity to add work. there's never been a requirement that you can't have more work. the requirement that they're waiving was saying that people don't have to work to get welfare. that's the change that they proposed. i disagree with that direction. i think the president also -- i disagree with the direction on the work requirement as it related to food stamps. taking work requirements out of government assistance is, in my opinion, a very bad course to take and creates a culture of dependency. we help people who need help. we want to help people that need help. but the idea of removing work requirements i think is a mistake. >> keeping them honest, as you just heard, jim acosta say politic fact gave that rating a pants on fire. the "washington post" gave it four pinocchios and quote, a mitt romney tv ad claims the obama
unnecessary for a few months any talk of military action. the obama administration is very comfortable with tough sanctions on iran and may be an area of some agreem tougher sanctionsahu'sg with his diagram the three differentll of the uranium metaphorical fuse would be lit and would be complete next spring or next summer. you, fareed, spoke with the man that prime minister netanyahu was very directly targeting, that being the president of d ahmadinejad. let me just play a little bit of your conversation and then we'll talk on the oav t thcated israeli toward iran are ones se seriously you take the rhetoric of the p of the united states. pres at the prevent iran fm acquiring nuclear weapons. do you regard that as a bluff? >> translator: you set forth two or three questions here. i have never used the word bluff. when we say we do not take it seriously, we mean that it impacts, it does not impact our policies in the slightest. iran is a vast country it is a great country i. let's assume a few terrorists come and assassinate a few officials. will the country be dama
to respond? the national debt has gone in the nearly four years of the obama administration from more than $10 trillion to now more than $16 trillion, an increase of $6 trillion. >> well, first of all, wolf, let me just say this. the two wars have cost us an enormous amount of money and the loss of our brave servicemen and women as well. so that added to the national deficit. and one other thing that we should talk about in terms of the national deficit, part of it is that we're not bringing in as much revenue as we should be bringing in to pay for all the things, the services and programs that the american people continue to desire. there's no question under this president that we've seen, you know, the most significant budget cuts also in the history of country. discretionary spending is at its lowest in 60 years. taxes are also at their lowest. but the one thing that the democrats have not done, we haven't walked away from the table. we haven't pointed fingers and said it's their fault. we're all in this together. it's time republicans roll up their sleeves and come to the table so we c
. he took a swipe at the obama administration by noting the current state of fairs overseas. >> syria has witnessed the killing of tens of thousands of people. the president of egypt is a member of the muslim brotherhood. the ambassador to libya was killed in a terrorist attack. iran is moving toward flunuclea weapons capabilities. we feel like we're at the mercy of events rather than starting events. >> mr. romney reiterated that -- >>> it's the call everyone is talk about. packers versus seahawks. should the players union pull the members off the field to support the nfl referees? i'm barack obama and i approve this message. romney: "is time to stand up to the cheaters" vo: tough on china? not mitt romney. when a flood of chinese tires threatened a thousand american jobs... it was president obama who stood up to china and protected american workers. mitt romney attacked obama's decision... said standing up to china was "bad for the nation and our workers." how can mitt romney take on the cheaters... when he's taking their side? monarch of marketing analysis. with the ability to impr
't heard the obama administration do that yet. is that the issue right now? >> well, as the prime minister said to the general assembly today, wolf, the drawing of the red line is designed to give diplomacy and sanctions more time to work. we believe by drawing that red line you won't be increasing the chances of military engagement, you'll be significantly lessening the chances of a military engagement because the iranians have been presented with red lines in e past in trai of hormuz and they've backed down. we know they can see the color red. we're engaged in a conversation with the obama administratio about setting limits to iran's enrichment process because that's the part of the iranian nuclear program that we can actually see and mor. and that the part that's in facilities that areservle and are still lnerable. and so the obama administration's engaging with in a dialogue t it. you mention tt the secretary of state will be meeting with the prime minister this evening. thidengt willalking netanyahu tomorrow. th p of an ongoing dialogue that we've had to reach an understanding about
are making is that for political reasons the obama administration downplayed this notion of this being an act of terror, pre-planned, any association with al qaeda. they were just wanting to show it's not happening on the president's watch. and they couldn't be blamed for this, if you will, the shotty if you will security that was at that consulate in benghazi. >> wolf, it may take some weeks now to get to the bottom of that. and whether or not that was -- it was dick kated by politics the initial response. we see today senator john kerry, aemocrat the senate asking the right questions. these are questions that others memberenof thee and house are also sking. so ihi you ought to expect we will see extensive hearings and investigation on this>> now the week that f agents who have bnt tselibya to investigate, they still have not beenble to get to the scene of thisro actionn bengzi. they're basically holed hundreds of miles away in tripoli, the capital. you have new information? >> that's right, wolf. so you've got a handful -- u've got some fbi agents in tripoli waiting todeploo benghazi. yove
it know it and when and how was the obama administration informed. just in to cnn, the national intelligence director is addressing both issues. let's get right to cnn intelligence correspondent suzanne kelly in washington. >> this has been something of a political football thrown around for a couple of weeks now as people try to nail down what happened, when intelligence officials knew it, and this is the fullest accounting yet we're getting now from the office of the director of national intelligence on exactly what they knew and when. i want to read to you from a statement by shawn turner, the director of public affairs for the odni's office. he said in the immediate aftermath there was information that led us to assess that the attack began spontaneously following protests earlier thie day at our embassy in cairo. we provided that initial assessment to executive branch officials and members of congress who use that formation to discuss the attack publicly. now, the problem, of course, began when did people know that this was planned, when did they realize that this actually
. the state filed a lawsuit against the obama administration to get access to the homeland security database which is considered the best information available on citizenship. but this pro skes is just well already becse i'm talking to county election supervisors today who are upset t names they got last night or the names they're getting include people who have already been removed from the roles last spring. >> why does it matter? 198 names seem to be a small number to have this political fight continue. >> an extremely small number. it's largely because the governor here, rick scott, has made this a very important priority. he has said that a vote by a noncitizen should not die lut the vote of a legitimate voter. this issue polls very well people when asked about this are adamant. they don't think noncitizens should be voting, but in reality very few noncitizens have ever voted in a florida election from the data from what we can see. >> clearly this has a political impa here as well. the report that the new list essentially was dominated with hispanames and key political counties like da
of preemptive strike against iran, imagine that happens, what does the obama administration do if it's still in power come november and the election? what do you do? >> well, i mean, that's the dilemma in terms of turning to military action that may well be necessary at some point. israel probably has -- certainly has the capability to in some ways delay, you know, the advance towards that nuclear line, but perhaps does not have the ability to destroy the entire program. and that's the conundrum when you get to military action is in many respects, if you start this fight, one of two things has to happen. you have to continue to regime change as we did in iraq. that's a legitimate policy option but obviously a very expensive one. but the other is should it not destroy iran's nuclear program, you probably make that iranian bomb inevitable, because you can destroy facilities but you can't destroy knowledge. >> richard williamson, let's assume mitt romney wins in november. his rhetoric has been even stronger against president ahmadinejad and iran. what would a romney administration do if israel
have been critical of the u.s. policy toward iran. saying the obama administration has a cavalier attitude. how do they have a cavalier attitude? >> the idea you are going to stop them from becoming nuclear by just saying things like all options are on the table or -- >> isn't that what mitt romney said, all options are on the table? >> mitt romney is not the president of the united states. the president of the united states should be communicating he will take military action. >> no person says we are going to bomb you. george w. bush said all options are on the table. >> i remember they did that with ronald reagan. he was pretty successful. reagan said he was going to take military action and pointed missiles and made it clear. >> so reagan said all options are on the table plenty of times. >> this was a long time ago when bush was dealing with iran. iran was five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten years away from becoming nuclear. iran now could be a month away, two months away, two years away. under president obama iran has by three times increased the uranium and made it much more
sway when it comes to the white house, with the obama administration, to move any closer to his timetable? he is talking about war with iran potentially being imminent if they're able to get a nuclear weapon. >> this has been going on some time as to how close they really are. i think netanyahu makes the white house and others nervous because of the election. we saw the u.s. boycott iran's speech yesterday. they stated they weren't in the room at the general assembly because of iran's position and because it was the yom kippur holiday. they were in the room for other speeches on the yom kippur holiday. i think this will go right up to election day. the israelly leaders putting some heat on. i think there's no doubt they wouldn't mind if they saw romney get in. >> thank you very much, richard. we'll bring the speeches for you live both from mahmoud abbas as well as netanyahu. >>> it has been two weeks since the attack on the consulate in benghazi. why wasn't the fbi actually visited the skrim scene yet? we'll stake a look at the reasons. >> this is actually spain this week. this
, what sort of relationship should the united states have with iraq now. how did the obama administration handle the end of the war and where do we go from here. >> those are all important questions, but the whole war was built on a faulty prim is that saddam had weapons of mass destruction. >> i think it's conceded that they didn't have weapons of mass destruction. >> i remember i was in kuwait on the eve of the war. i had a gas masks, they were really fed basically a lie, if you will. >> no, i don't agree. i think that the intelligence was poor and badly done, but i do think -- >> when i say a lie, i mean the sources who were providing that intelligence, these false iraqi sources who were claiming there was poisonous gas here, chemical weapons there, that was a lie. >> i was imbedded for that period and i remember general conway was ahead of the marine forces and they intercepted the code word blood which they thought was the use of chemical weapons. >> the american forces believed that they would face chemical weapons. i remember skud missiles coming in. they believed it. i'm just sayi
. virtually the eastern two-thirds of the state has natural gas. the obama administration is trying to use the epa to cripple the development of this energy. governor romney favors senator hoeven's plan. there's an easy place to get john kasich in as his ally explaining why ohio should control its own destiny and why ohians should retake the lead in manufacturing worldwide. >> mr. speaker, i can sense a little frustration perhaps in your voice. if you had the opportunity to give some advice to mitt romney about this upcoming debate just a week from now, what would that advice be given the fact that you've debated him yourself? >> look, i actually just wrote a newsletter for gingrich productions and outlining my thoughts about presidential debates because i've watched them since the first ones with nixon and kennedy. the first ground is be who you are. you're not going to change somebody at his age who's done things very successfully. don't take advice from consultants who want you to somehow imaginely be non-mitt. my second advice is walk in determined to draw very sharp, clear lines with
. >> the obama administration is facing serious questions whether the deaths of the four men could have been prevented because of ongoing security concerns. the state department official says the u.s. is drawing down its staff and embassy in libya's capit capital. >>> we just got word mitt romney will have a phone call conversation with benjamin netanyahu and so will president obama. it comes two days after president obama stood before the united nations and warned against a nuclear iran. yesterday, netanyahu underscored iran having a nuclear bomb and shrugged off. he said the world may be months away from the point of no return. >> where should a red line be drawn? a red line should be drawn right here. befo before, before iran completes the second stage of nuclear enrichment necessary to make a bomb. before iran gets to a point where it's a few months away or a few weeks away from amassing enough enriched uranium from making a nuclear weapon. >> mahmoud ahmadinejad accused israel of carrying out a campaign of ethnic cleansing. netanyahu fired back saying the state hood of palestinians cann
court is now back in session for the first time since it ruled on the obama administration's landmark health care law last june. so how might mitt romney change the high court if he becomes president of the united states? he's already giving all of us some major clues. let's bring in cnn's crime and justice correspondent joe johns who's taking a closer look. what are you seeing? >> the supreme court doesn't get talked about that much on the campaign trail. but choosing a justice is one of the most important things a president does. it's how on administration puts its mark on some of the nation east toughest, most divisive issues. and we have a look at how mitt romney might handle it if he's president. whenever mitt romney fielded questions during the primaries about his picks for the supreme court, he was armed with a stock republican answer. >> what i would look to do would be to appoint people to the supreme court that will follow strictly the constitution as opposed to to legislating from the bench. >> reporter: but he wouldn't choose a favorite. >> would you pick one, please? >> y
no mistake -- >> president obama at the rose garden. now, david axelrod and others in the administration are now saying that he was quick to label the benghazi killings an act of terror based on his wording there. keeping them honest, that was both the first and last time that he used that word in relation to this. even days later, no one in the administration even came close to that language. listen. >> it's important to know that there's an fbi investigation that has begun and will take some time to be completed. at will tell us with certainty what transpired but our current best assessment based on the information that we have at present is that in fact, what this began as was a spontaneous, not a premeditated response to what had transpired in cairo. in cairo, as you know, a few hours earlier there was a violent protest that was undertaken in reaction to this very offensive video that was disseminated. >> the u.n. ambassador susan rice. two sundays ago, took another three days before the administration began acknowledging what many experts say should have been obvious. >> let me begi
with you on the terror front and the obama administration. do you buy david axelrod saying that president obama labeled it terror the next day? >> well, it didn't sound from that context as if he labeled it as terrorism the next day, anderson. but it does seem credible to me that the white house is sharing with the public what it knows when it knows. it's very difficult to get good information immediately and as this issue becomes clearer, i think the white house has made a credible effort to tell the americans what it, in fact, knows about it. >> ari fleischer, what about that? david axelrod is also saying look, an investigation, you have to be prudent, you're president of the united states, you can't jump to conclusions. >> i have a fair amount of sympathy. i stood on that podium at the white house in the case of attacks on our country. you have to wait until you have all the facts to speak. but in this case, i think there was a willful pattern in this administration of downplaying terrorist attacks against our country. it was done with the underwear bomber on the airplane. it was done
to pull out of afghanistan by the end of 2014. >>> the obama administration now defending its original assessment of the attack that killed four americans in libya on september 11th. they are no longer calling it spontaneous violence sparked by outrage over that anti-islam trailer. but rather a deliberate act of terrorism. senator john mccain told our candy crowley there is much more to this story. >> that doesn't pass the smell test. it was either willful ignorance or abysmal intelligence. to think that people come to spontaneous demonstrations with heavy weapons, mortars and the attack goes on for hours. >> the president called it an act of terror the day after it happened. but when you're the responsible party, when you're the administration, you have a responsibility to act on what you know and what the intelligence community believes. this was -- this is being thoroughly investigated. >> i'm joined by phone from tripoli, libya. welcome. >> hi, carol. >> i'm just wondering, the obama administration says they're going to catch the people who killed the u.s. ambassador and three othe
saying the president has thrown israel under the bus recently saying the obama administration has a, quote, chronic disregard for the security of israel, so now in the same day that the president will be having this phone call with benjamin netanyahu, mitt romney's campaign saying he, too, will be speaking with him by phone. this is a chance for mitt romney to again show that he is a friend to israel and that he is committed to making sure that iran does not acquire a nuclear weapon. >> okay. dan lothian at the white house. thanks very much, live for us this morning. it merits repeating that they have had a strained relationship almost from day one. here with me to talk about the diplomatic implications, foreign affairs reporter elise levitt. you have been watching this all week and seen all the accusations. is what dan just reported on enough to smooth the ruffled feathers? is this over? >> these guys don't love each other. they don't love the different styles and i think both of them wanted to provoke each other a little bit. the reason they never mitt, prime minister netanyahu sa
was the journal significant? well, at the time that cnn discovered it, the obama administration, remember, was still downplaying the possibility that this was a deliberate terrorist attack, but was instead part of the violent reaction all over the arab world to that anti-muslim youtube video. this is what they were publicly saying then. >> this is a fy volatile situation and it is in response, to obviously the admistration,ot not to the american ople. it i response to video, a film, that we have judged to be reprehensible a disgting. that in no way justifies any violent reaction to it. >> now, even in that early stage, many in the foreign policy and global security community doubted that explanation. the journal certainly raises questions about that. neither "360" nor cnn rushed to air with details from the journal. we didn't publicly announce we had foun i adithin hours of findinit, we informed the family of ambassador stevens. cnn did not public announce we had found it out of respect fo the mily. instead, as cnn does withvery sty, ourrrespoents and our producers sought as many other so
, but it is hard when ever single word is going to be criticized. but what about the situation about how the obama administration handled this? we have learned at cnn that the u.s. consulate in benghazi did not meet standard u.s. consulate security requirements. this is obviously a rather damning thing to be discovering at this point, considering what ended up happening there. jon huntsman told me he thinks consulates there who are not beefed up on security, shouldn't the administration be responding to that? >> i think the administration is responding to it. the state department goes to regular security procedures all over the world and updates them to take into account how the situation on the ground changes. i spent a lot of time in iraq and as we were transitioning from our military presence there to the state department presence there, we looked very closely at the security procedures at our con sue lates and embassies. so i expect in the aftermath of these incidents, there will be another review and steps will be taken to improve security where needed. >> let's talk about libya and the mixed
spoke with mayor giuliani moments ago. have you been very critical, saying the obama administration has a cavalier ahead attitude? >> the idea you stop them from becoming nuclear by saying things like also options are on the table or -- >> isn't that what mitt romney has said? >> mitt romney is not the president. the president of the united states -- the president of the united states should be communicating is that he will take military action. >> no president ever says we're going to bomb you. george w. bush said all options on the table. >> ronald reagan made it pretty clear he was going to take action, he pointed missiles at the soviet union. >> was bush wrong when he didn't say we are going to bomb you, he said all options are on the table. >> this was a long time ago when bush was dealing with iran, they were five, six, seven, eight, nine years from being becoming nuclear. iran now could be months washg a year away, two years away. iran has three times increased the uranium and made it much more enriched than originally. that is a massive change in a very short period of time. and
what happened the first two years of the obama administration, and democrats should have been able to do anything they wanted to do, and now is when that should pay off. we shouldn't be worried about what happened last month and how that impacts the economy because, frankly, we've had no budget, no appropriations bills. the majority in the senate, i think, will change because people are tired of a senate that won't do the things that need to be done. >> let me ask you about the state of the race in missouri. this is where you had congressman akin who made a ve controversial remark, which you condemn, which others condemn. you, in fact, said at the time we do not believe it sefshz the national interest for congressman todd akin to stay in the race for senate. the issues at stake are too big, and it's simply too important. the right decision is to step aside. as we all know todd akin did not step aside. he is running as the republican. you are looking as though -- the republicans are looking as though they're going to lose that race because akin stayed in it. >> i think at the end of
what sticks. we've seen that the past week or so with their criticism of the obama administration regarding foreign policy decisions specifically what happened over in libya and with the ambassador being killed over there. we're seeing here now that they realize it doesn't pay to be outwardly partisan. in that ad we just saw, you heard mr. romney say that president obama cares for the middle class and poor people as i do. of course he does. and of course mitt romney does. anyone that thinks otherwise would be rather jaded. but the fact of the matter is what mitt romney is trying to convey is is that his policies will be better. you might like president obama as a person, carol, but his policies haven't worked for the past four years. >> some republicans think that's not such a good strategy. they think that mitt romney should be just as hard on president obama as he has been in the past and the softening of issues only confuses republican voters, especially core voters. >> it's not his job to be outwardly partisan. he's supposed to be the states man. he's the one supposed to be ta
and the obama administration say terrorists clearly planned the attack on the consulate in benghazi. the american ambassador to libya was killed. leon panetta says there are still many unanswered questions that still do need to be resolved. >> as to who was involved, what specific groups were involved, i think the investigation that is ongoing hopefully will determine that. >> the fbi is investigating the attack but agents are not yet on the ground in benghazi due to concerns about security. they're still in tripoli right now and sources tell cnn the consulate site remains unsecured and staff is being removed from there in tripoli due to security reason there. >> the man who ignited this is in custody in los angeles this morning. but authorities claim it has nothing to do with that movie. nakoula basseley nakoula was held on alleged parole violations connected with his violati violation. he used at least 17 fake names including sam basseley, the pseudonym under which he made the film. >>> investigators say the sons anarchy star beat and strangled his 81-year-old land lady before fal
the problems for the middle class and that the obama administration has started to pull it out by its boot straps. and so the obama campaign just in case we didn't get that has a statement that says that the romney campaign is taking this entirely out of context. it's obviously in looking at the full transcript that joe biden was talking about the fact that the middle class was buried under failed bush policies. and of course they say romney/ryan would change all that. however, this is an opportunity, which the romney campaign is taking to say, you know what, we agree with you. the middle class has been buried and we're going to change that. imagine this as kind of the dry season in the west in the summer. and any match or any lightning strike is going to start a huge fire. and that's what's going on here the closer we get to the election. >> this is coming a day before the debate. how detrimental could this be for the obama campaign? >> i'm sure the obama campaign is thinking this is a headache they don't need. as you know in the past joe biden has given them a bunch of headaches. they li
